Kama Ayurveda! Is there anyone who doesn’t know this brand. Most well known for its authentic ayurvedic products, Kama’s production partner is the one and only Arya Vaidya Pharmacy, which is the original Ayurvedic Institution based in Coimbatore. Kama Ayurveda not only provide iconic beauty treatment products with zero artificialness, they do not conduct test on animals too. That is why it is the most sort out brand among natural skincare junkies. However, trying and testing out their products to check your skin suitability can make a hole in your pocket. Yes their products are expensive! Today I would like to give you a jist of various Kama Ayurveda products that I got to try recently. That includes both products that worked for me and those that didn’t work out. Let’s hop on.
1.Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Brightening Face Scrub Review
Kumkumadi Oils have been raved for its wonderful skin benefits which includes reduction of skin blemishes and pigmentation. But being the person I am, I’m still nervous about using oils on my facial skin. Although it can’t be compared to the oil, this product just came in as a boon for my oily skin giving a way to try out a Kumkumadi product. Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Scrub is basically a cream based scrub containing Kumkumadi(Saffron), Almond, Goat’s Milk and other wonderful ingredients. The scrub feels creamy on the skin and the scrubbing particles are teeny tiny. When used a light hand, it gently exfoliated the skin and sloughed off the dead cells clearing the pores. With a single use, it made my skin visibly brighter, smoother and healthier. It has a pleasant aroma that does not linger post washing. I find the Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Scrub to be an amazing scrub that stays true to its claim of being a brightening scrub. A must try!

2.Kama Ayurveda Eladi Hydrating Ayurvedic Face Cream Review
Kama Ayurveda Eladi Hydrating Ayurvedi Cream is a semi-thick white cream that has an obvious ayurvedic fragrance. The scent is not that bad as compared to some Kama products. As the name suggests, this is a rich cream that is immensely hydrating and moisturizing. It spreads and gets soaked into the skin easily and leaves my skin soft and smooth. As long as I’m in a cool environment, this cream works absolutely fine. It keeps my skin moisturized, smooth and nourished. However the minute I move to a humid/normal temperature, my skin starts perspiring heavily and eventually the cream feels tacky and uncomfortable on the skin. I found this to be an average hydrating cream that would suit only normal to dry skin types.

3.Kama Ayurveda Natural Sun Protection SPF 21 UVA UVB PA++ Review
By one look of the sunscreen, I could easily tell that this is a zinc oxide based physical sunscreen. The white zinc particles are visibly present in a wax base and upon blending the sunscreen, they fuse together and get absorbed into the skin. The sunscreen has a mild balmy fragrance which isn’t bothering. Upon application, it gives a cooling sensation and feels balmy/waxy on the skin. It leaves a white cast which settles after a while but may look too obvious on medium to dark skin toned. The sunscreen starts to perspire on my nose area and upper lips so I always set it with a powder and then I’m good to go. I used this for about a full week and I didn’t have any new breakouts though this contains butters and is a tad bit heavier on my oily skin. It provides good protection against sun rays and I didn’t face any major tanning with moderate sun exposure. Overall, Kama Ayurveda Natural Sun Protection is a decent physical sunscreen that provides good sun protection. However this is best suited for normal to dry skin types.

4. Kama Ayurveda Pure Rose Water Review
The best from Kama Ayurveda. This was my very first product from the brand and it totally changed my thoughts about rose waters. I did not know that most rose waters available in the market are just water with few drops of rose essential oil until I tried this. This is a steam distilled pure rose water that is made from fresh roses picked up from Kannuj. It smells amazingly beautiful with it’s aroma of fresh roses. When sprayed on the skin, it instantly refreshes and provides a nice toning effect. I’ve used up two bottles of these and I can say this is one of the best rose waters I’ve used so far. This is a highly recommended product. A superior quality rose water that is hard to find in Indian market is what I would say.

5. Kama Ayurveda Nimrah Anti-Acne Face Pack Review
Yet another amazing product. Kama Ayurveda Nimrah Anti-Acne Face pack is a mud mask that emits an earthy aroma. It smells so fresh and pure, as that of wet mud after the first rain. The face mask is reddish brown in color and resembles red sandalwood powder. I mix with water to form a smooth paste and apply evenly using my fingers, you can use a brush if you prefer; But I’m lazy. I like that it does not give any tingling sensation and makes my skin feel totally normal. Sometimes I want my face masks to work without giving any uneasy feel which is why I love this mask. It dries up fast in 10-15 mins, so it isn’t a time consuming mask too. Splashing some water on the face is going to easily rinse off this mask, no rigorous rubbing or massaging is needed. At times when I need some exfoliation, I re-dampen my face and gently scrub in circular motions. Since it’s finely milled, it does not feel harsh or scratchy and rejuvenates the skin. The after effects are really impressive. Post cleansing, I could see my skin to be cleaner, softer and radiant. The most commendable part, this mud mask does not dry out the overall skin yet it calms active acne. It reduces redness and soothes tiny zits too. I found this to be a great product that actually worked in treating my occasional non-cystic acne. Highly recommended for those who are suffering from acne.

6. Kama Ayurveda Bhringadi Intensive Hair Treatment Oil Review
First and foremost, Kama Ayurveda Bhringadi Hair Oil has an attribute which I detest any hair oil to posses. That’s the fragrance, particularly a headache causing one. The hair oil has a strong over the top herbal fragrance which lingers for a minimum of 3 hours. The oil is brownish in color and has a medium consistency, which leans towards the thinner side. Applying it requires no effort and I usually apply it on my scalp prior to washing my hair. The hair oil isn’t too sticky like Castor Oil or lightweight like Mineral Oil, its in between both serving its purpose of providing nourishment to my mane. Post shampooing, it leaves my hair very soft, smooth and nourished. I could easily skip a conditioner as this hair oil deeply conditioned my hair which in turn reduced hairfall that was caused due to breakage. In short, if you can bear strong herbal fragrances, I would recommend trying it. As for hair growth, I can’t comment on it as it requires long term usage.

7. Kama Ayurveda Nalpamaradi Skin Brightening Treatment Review
I picked this up to see if it works on an age old pigmentation spots on my forearm. Nalpamaradi Thailam is a unique treatment oil power packed with natural herbs in a sesame oil base. This can be used as a de-tanning oil for both face and body. Kama Ayurveda Nalpamaradi Skin Brightening Treatment is a dark yellow colored oil with a powerful ayurvedic fragrance. The oil, containing turmeric root, is stainable so I had to be careful with the clothes that I wear when using this oil. I applied it every night for 10 days straight, massaging a dollup into my right forearm. The oil is not very heavy and gets soaked into the skin. As recommended, I removed it after 30 minutes with a damp cotton ball. It was fairly easy to wipe off as there wasn’t much oil left on my skin as most of it was absorbed into the skin. May be if you use on your face, you might need a cleanser as the skin on your face is more prone to getting clogged. The initial days, I didn’t find much difference, but as days went by, I could notice a difference on the pigmentation spots. It was gradually disappearing and with continuous usage, it could have removed the pigmentation completely. Sadly the sample I had got over and couldn’t test it further. Nevertheless, every time I used this, it left arms soft and smooth. In all, I’m impressed with this product. Kama Ayurveda Nalpamaradi Skin Brightening Treatment truly works to remove stubborn pigmentation spots.

Final Thoughts on Kama Ayurveda products
Having used a variety of Kama Ayurveda products, I feel the quality of the products to be top notch. The products do look and feel very Natural, unlike many brands that claim to be natural yet does not feel Natural. The fragrance of Kama Ayurveda products is one of the factors that proves them to be pure and genuine. However, few of these natural formulations didn’t go well with my oily skin and I feel most of their products are catered towards normal to dry skin types especially their creams. And forget not! Kama Ayurveda is a luxury brand so be prepared to spend a bomb if you are going to explore this brand.
That was all about it. I hope you find this post helpful in choosing Kama Ayurveda products. Have you tried their products? Which is your most favourite product from the brand? Share your thoughts.
